Hip-Hop pioneer The Chief Rocker Busy Bee and Urban Gold Music recently released The History Of Hip Hop Volume One, the first release in a 10-CD compilation series featuring vintage battles and performances from the late 1970's and early 1980's.
The new album features digitally remastered classic material that documents Busy Bee’s storied career from the beginning of Hip-Hop, including never before released audio.
The CD's also feature celebrated MC's like The Cold Crush Brothers, The Jazzy Five, Kool Moe Dee and Grandmaster Flash.
With a career that spans over thirty years, Busy Bee, born David Parker, began rapping in 1977 and earned a reputation as one of New York’s top battle rappers.
Busy Bee also won the New Music Seminar's MC World Supremacy Belt in 1986.
